warcraft 3 by todays standards is an old game, but it is still popular. Larger monitors, 21" or larger, have native resolutions that are not supported by warcraft 3. There is, of course, a way to force warcraft 3 (both reign of chaos and the frozen throne) to run in a high or widescreen resolution. The only way to do this is to do a simple registry edit. I have included a couple of pictures to demonstrate how to do this registry edit. I have done this before in the past and it is safe.
First, we need to open a 'run' window. Go to start--->run--->regedit. Then follow the below navigation...

there are two variables that you must change: Resheight and reswidth.
make sure you change the default hex value to decimal value.
example - 24" widescreen with 1920x1200 resolution.
Reswidth = 1920
resheight = 1200
you may have to restart warcraft 3 for the change to take effect. Thats all there is to it! Have fun playing warcraft 3 with your monitor's native resolution.
